My Black Beauty.

I never even put a seat cover to honor it, cause I should use the originals. Past seven years with it I have travelled the length and breadth of Saudi Arabia and even to the farthest of UAE. The verdict
"Deserts can be beautiful". And my travel rule "Never wait to reach the destination, enjoy the very journey itself". Gifts of life are given by the One Sustainer to use at its best and not necessarily to keep for tomorrow. Today is in our hands. Tomorrow is unknown and uncertain. The Present is always with presents. Hopefully wait to see the tomorrow when it turns with new presents. Enjoy life (in Halal ways), focus on what you have rather than what you don't. Happiness is inside rather than outside. Keep driving life's vehicle till the end of the road. Until when life meets death with a smile for the new world of eternity. Hope is the petrol of life's vehicle. Keep driving..keep refilling the hope's tank. My Black Beauty has all in it. Alhamdulillah.

Shaikh Muhammad Mahmood al Tablawi Passed Away

One of the very well known Egyptian Qari of our times Muhammad Al Tablawi returned to his Rabb (الله) Tuesday evening 12th of Ramadan-1441AH (5th-May-2020) at a time just before Iftar while he was in fasting. He was 86 years old. إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ

One of my most favourite and surely favourites to many who hardly can be imitated by anyone. His recitations are so addictive and take you to the world of Quran. إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ Tablawi (rah) will be heard and heard again until Allah withstands this earth. As we still hear day to day Quran recitations from his predecessors Shaikh Siddeeq AlManshawi (Died in 1969) and Shaikh Abdul Basith Abdul Samad (Died in 1988)[الله يرحمهم جميعا ويسكنهم فسيح جناته]

We all miss someone so beloved who was in service of Quran for more than 60 years. So blessed to live so long in the service of the Glorious Quran. May Allah accept. May Allah shower blessing and show mercy on Him. May His recitations and Quraan be means of interceding for him. May Allah united with His mercy us and him amongst His loved ones in the eternal abode of Paradise. Aameen.

My First Cassette of Shaikh Muhammad Al Mohisni


Life sometimes gifts you with wonders which may lasts for a lifetime. The memories of which is timelessly embedded deep in your heart and the brain. You recall it only with a touch of ecstasy and with being nostalgic about it. Miss those good old golden days. The memories try to grasp it out of dreams but time has already walked way ahead in life span. Content this being the will of my Master and His design of life for all. There is no other choice than cherishing those beautiful memories.

It was in the year 1988, while we were staying at Azeeziyya of Makkah Al Mukarramah. In front of us the small house we stayed in was Darul Iftah, They used to provide free books and audio cassettes. We requested our father to get a cassette of Quran Recitation as this made our Hifz easy. So my father first brought this cassette of Muhammad Al Mohisni. The same I have shared the video here. Shaikh Muhammad bin Sulaiman al Mohisni recites in Tarawih prayer of 1407 AH, Surah Al Hujrath to the End of Tahreem. So beautifully and so nicely. My Lord, How can I forget thy blessings.

ذَٲلِكَ مِن فَضۡلِ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيۡنَا
This is part of God's blessing to us
